By now Prius vehicles are everywhere, yet only 20 years ago they were a novelty. They are reliable, and with proper maintenance can last 300,000 miles or more. During that time you will need to replace a few components, one of them being inverter.
Toyota issued a recall for inverter related problems, and many vehicles had the work completed. Yet, many have sustained thermal damage before the recall, and may have to have inverters replaced. Inverters also fail due to age and use.
The indicators of a possible inverter failure include hybrid system warning and power steering warning coming “on”. Naturally, at Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley we recommend that you visit a professional mechanic to diagnose the root cause of the problem. At our Castro Valley auto care facility we use state-of-the-art digital diagnostic equipment, and our technicians are nationally ASE certified – they will find the root cause and will get your vehicle diagnosed and fixed right – the first time.
If we test your vehicle and it turns out that the inverter needs to be replaced, you will find that repairs are performed in a professional manner, and that we stand behind our work with an industry leading 36 months / 36,000 miles nationwide warranty.
So call us at the shop to make an appointment or you can make an appointment online, on our website, if you so prefer.
